Hundreds Respond To Sunday Blaze

More than 250 volunteers and 26 emergency services agencies responded to the largest fire in Jefferson County in more than a century on Sunday as crews worked for more than eight hours fighting a fire at the Livingston Enterprises Stateline facility. The facility, which is one of Jefferson County's largest employers, is home to more than 10,000 head swine farrowing operation, one of the largest in the state of Nebraska.
According to reports, owner Bruce Livingston reported the fire to Jefferson County dispatch shortly before 6 p.m. By the time the first wave of rural firefighters from Fairbury arrived on scene at least one building was fully engulfed in flames. 
Fairbury rural fire chief Kenny Krause reported Monday that on the complex four structures were a complete loss and two other suffered extensive damage.
